|Battery Size||Rechargeable Lithium-Ion|
|Receiver Power Levels||LP, MP, HP, & UP|
|Number of Channels||17|
|Binaural Directionality III||Binaural Directionality III optimizes the sensitivity patterns to achieve the best combination of speech from the front and spatial awareness. Binaural Directionality III provides the ultimate balance for supporting natural hearing: a signal-to-noise ratio improvement similar to bilateral directional micro-phones and a significant benefit in ease of listening compared to other directional microphone strategies. It uniquely applies directional microphone technology to support both the awareness and better-ear listening strategies.|
|Spatial Sense||Spatial Sense accounts for three hearing instrument-related issues that can interfere with spatial localisation cues, by integrating two technologies to preserve the acoustic cues for spatial hearing: Pinna Restoration and Binaural Compression.|
|Natural Directionality II||Natural Directionality II is a feature which places one ear in omnidirectional and the other ear in directional.|
|Directional Mix Processor||Directional Mix Processing gives hearing aid wearers rich overall sound quality, and helps people localize sound. It is the engine that enables us to provide all the benefits of directionality while maintaining natural-sounding voices.|
|Adjustable Mix Processing||Split band directionality processes low frequency sounds in an omnidirectional pattern and high frequencies as a directional response. The blending point at which this occurs can be changed by altering the Adjustable Directional Mix.|
|Synchronized Soft Switching||SoftSwitching is an automatic feature which switches between directional and omnidirectional settings when required.|
|Autoscope Adaptive Directionality||AutoScope Adaptive Directionality automatically adjusts the directional beamwidth of the hearing aid, based on the relative levels of inputs to the front and rear microphones|
|Noise Tracker II||NoiseTracker II is a unique spectral subtraction technology used to reduce unwanted noise without degrading the speech signal.|
|Expansion||In contrast to Wide Dynamic Range Compression, expansion reduces audibility for very soft sounds.|
|Impulse Noise Reduction||Technology to reduce sudden loud sounds without affecting overall gain of the hearing aids.|
|Wind Guard||Windguard is a feature designed to reduce the effects of microphone noise in windy situations.|
|Sound Shaper||Sound Shaper is a frequency lowering strategy where information is moved from higher frequency areas to lower frequency areas where audibility is better.|
|DFS Ultra II||DFS is our Digital Feedback Suppression system for preventing unwanted feedback. DFS Ultra stabilises the signal by suppressing feedback, while providing sufficient gain and without introducing artefacts or compromising sound quality.|
|Music Mode||Allows for better accuracy in distinguishing true feedback from other tonal input sounds, such as those commonly found in music.|
|Synchronized Acceptance Manager||Synchronised Acceptance Manager is a feature that provides changes in gain settings over a specified period of time|
|Low Frequency Boost (Only UP)||Increases the gain of frequencies below 1000 Hz so that users get a more rich sound quality experience.|
|Tinnitus Sound Generator||The Tinnitus Sound Generator (TSG) is a very flexible Tinnitus Manager feature, to help divert people’s focus away from their tinnitus|

Made for iPhone Hearing Aid
ReSound LiNX was the first “Made-for-iPhone” hearing aid on the market when it was initially launched in 2014. The ability to stream calls, music and other audio directly to hearing aids was revolutionary for the time. Before the launch of ReSound LiNX, many hearing aids had wireless capabilities, but they all required the use of a hearing aid streaming accessory. When ReSound started working with Apple to allow streaming directly from an iPhone to Bluetooth connected hearing aids, consumers instantly took notice.
Hearing Aid Streaming from Android
ReSound LiNX Quattro 9 direct streaming capabilities are currently limited to the iPhone only. This direct streaming from an iPhone to these hearing aids requires no streamer or other intermediary device.

It’s nice to have direct streaming from the phone, but using a streaming accessories has its advantages. If you desire a truly hands free experience using a hearing aid, a streaming accessory is a must.

With the ability to answer phone calls via the streamer, actually having your phone on your person is no longer necessary. Even though iPhones have direct streaming to hearing aids, the actual iphones still have to be answered and talked into. Wireless streamers allow for the actual phone to left in the pocket r anywhere nearby. Where this specific technology can come in handy is if you have take a lot of phone calls and really need a hands free experience. We have also found that some of our clientele that have mobility issues enjoy this accessory and technology.
